There are recognised procedures for assessing whether noises from industrial sites are likely to cause complaints and whether these can be justified complaints. This would be the next step, or the first step if the complainant is uncooperative.
If the assessment shows that complaints are justified, a Noise Prediction Model will allow the effect of changing wall heights, relocating equipment, replacement by quieter equipment and so on. The cost of running a Noise Prediction Model is trivial compared to the cost of making any changes and therefore should be the next step.

"I came across your videos which were very useful for the ‘Management of Hazardous Materials and Processes’ module that I teach, which includes a section on containment. As many of our students have never worked in industry it always helps to have good visuals/videos to help explain material."
